The Case Against Encrypted Text Messaging

Yes, you read that title correctly. I, of all people, am advocating against increased security measures for texting. Before we go any further, I want to be clear that I am 100% in favor of encrypted messaging. Let’s put encryption everywhere we can, and lots of it. Lest we forget, this site uses full-time TLS and there isn’t even sensitive data being passed back and forth. There’s a caveat to my security gusto, however: do it right, or don’t bother.
